Our Father desires to gift us and give to us not only out of necessity, but in the midst of our desires and our intimacy and relationship with Him.
His desire is to see our Joy complete. It is important for us to know God’s word so that we know what He has promised to us and that we can ask in a manner boldly with full confidence because God has esteemed His Word above His name.
When we learn what it means to be a Son of God, we begin to walk with a new understanding of our entitlement and with a regal attitude that identifies us as the Royal Family of God.
We will be satisfied with nothing less than what God’s Word proclaims for us as rightfully ours and we will execute with all authority and power that which has been freely given. We will live a life of expectancy and abundance because we know that our desire to pursue and release the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth brings about all things in our lives with a violence and unapologetic intensity.
The days of living a life for Christ that is laissez faire are coming to an end as we begin to behold Christ, toe to toe, eye to eye, face to face, full on in the brilliance of His glory.
When we will no longer be satisfied with a simple church service, a church program, entertainment value, support groups, intellectual pop psychology pep speeches, condemnation by way of tradition and law, lack of love, mercy and grace, we will begin entering a time of the outpouring of God’s glory and power on His people, because there is a bountiful harvest awaiting thee reap, a harvest searching for something that is real and offers a complete deliverance and empowerment rather than a sympathetic ear or a spiritually neutered attempt to mask the symptoms of the larger problem. They are searching for the solution, the answer to the problem, the complete deliverance and the power to pass on to others the ability to overcome that which was a stronghold in their own life.
There is a life that was modeled by Christ, that we have the entitled privileged to grasp and envelop as our own, that is a far cry from the diluted state of what is now called being a Christian.
There is a life of discipleship and even greater of sonship through Christ that offers so much more in the way of power, authority, prosperity, joy and abundance is ALL areas of life itself.
It begins with opening all parts of our life to the Lordship of Christ, and seeking a hunger that burns within us to be all things in Christ. A desire that can only be birthed in us by God’s spirit alone. A weak and desperate cry is heard and honored by God in our willingness to even ask.
He supplies the Hunger, He supplies the love, He supplies the Faith, He supplies the Power, He supplies the victory, He supplies the promises, He supplies the abundance…..we simply supply the yes….over and over to anything and everything we supply the YES.
Jesus, I will cry out and I will ask, I will ask for more of you, more of your revelation, more of your spirit, more of your wisdom, more of the desire to love you, more of the desire to seek you, more of your lordship, until I embrace fully all that you have promised, all that you have freely given, all of the your gifts, until I live the abundant life to rule and reign with you, with power and authority as a complete son of God!!
24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
25“Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father. 26 In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 27 No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. 28 I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”
